*Centre for Ecological, Social, and Informatics Cognitive Research

*Moving Forward: Where is the Journalist in Social Media? SpringHill Suites
Downtown Denver Metropolitan State University of Denver Denver, Colorado
USA June 23-24, 2017*


* Call for Papers**:*

In the current political climate, the constructions of celebrity leaders
and popular forms of mediated truths, especially with the recent "fake"
internet news, have raised questions about journalism. Tabloid and other
forms of popular journalism use narrative devices of gossip, rumor and
scandals while many news media have abandoned facts and intelligent
analysis in favor of spectacular outrage and incivility, both situations
acting as testaments to the lack of informed opinions. Although scholars
and journalists work together during news reporting,
investigations/documentaries, and on other issues that are covered by news
media, scholars are often confined to academic research and disconnected
from the realities faced by journalists. Can citizen journalists and
journalism scholars help move forward with progressive research and
practice? What are the qualifications and definitions of a ‘journalist?’
Is this someone who is employed professionally - or someone who has
received an academic certification (degree) to be qualified?  Or can anyone
today be a journalist?

Citizen participation has been seen as essential in the democratic
processes of production, distribution, and reception of news. Online
participatory media such as blogs, comments and videos offer a democratic
platform for the expression of alternative ideas that may otherwise be
filtered by traditional journalism. Yet, citizen journalists need critical
media literacy that is often lost in the lure of visibility.  How can
journalism scholars creatively and critically engage citizen journalists in
the dissemination of their research, informed opinions and cultural
productions?

The Centre for Ecological, Social, and Informatics Cognitive Research
(ESI.CORE), in association with sponsors Centre for Media and Celebrity
Studies (CMCS) and WaterHill Publishing, invites academics, journalists,
publicists, producers and guests to attend, speak and collaborate at the
inaugural international conference *Moving Forward: Where is the Journalist
in Social Media?* Join us in Denver, Colorado where the conference will
uniquely combine vibrant roundtable and media workshop panels in a
collaborative network.

The format of the conference aims at being open and inclusive ranging from
interdisciplinary academic scholars to practitioners involved in all areas
of print, broadcast and online journalism. Working papers and media
productions will be considered for the conference.

Extended versions of selected best papers will be published in an edited
book.

*Registration includes**: *Your printed package for the complete
conference, professional development workshops, coffee / tea breaks, access

*Featured Media Workshop *

“Finding Your Voice: Being Heard in the Press Rather than Being Part of the
Herd”
http://www.esicore.org/events/denverworkshop2017.html

On May 7, 2004, *The New York Times *printed: “Most people, having given up
on getting a set of unadorned facts, align themselves with whichever spin
outlet seems comfortable.” In this two-hour workshop, participants will
learn how the traditional news media industry works and how to be heard by
press outlets and fellow citizens. Those in attendance will also learn how
to deal with social media news consumers who often operate without a
complete informational picture. Find out how to be both a critical consumer
of the news and an active participant in societal debates in this
innovative workshop.



*Key Speakers*



*Josh Nathan* graduated from Northwestern University, Magna cum Laude, in
Journalism before spending 10 years working on-air as a television reporter
and a National Weather Association certified meteorologist. His final
position in TV was with the NBC affiliate in Hawaii, where he was also
finishing his graduate degree. A professor with The Art Institutes in
Critical Thinking and Communication, he began teaching for the University
of Colorado Denver last year. He serves as an Academic Critic for the
Centre for Media and Celebrity Studies (CMCS) and is co-chair of its NYC
2017 conference. Quoted on a variety of subjects in international forums
with several journal publications to his credit, Nathan wrote his first
book about the ways in which news changes the collective memory of events,
altering historical narratives. His second book, *Too Mad to Trust *(2015),
was a departure aimed at curbing rising communicative disorders in
children, and he is currently completing his PhD in Education and Human
Resource Studies at Colorado State University.

*William Huddy* earned his Ph.D. in Communication Studies from the
University of Denver (2012).  Prior to academia, Huddy worked as a
journalist and anchored television newscasts in Colorado Springs, Colorado,
El Paso, Texas, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and Fort Myers, Florida. He’s a
Past-President (2007) of the Rocky Mountain Communication Association, and
an active member of the National Communication Association since 2001. He
teaches Political and Campaign Communication, Communication Research and
Theory Building, Interpersonal Communication and Public Speaking at
Metropolitan State University of Denver (since 2013), with a research focus
on student engagement and communication activism.  His most recent
publication came from the Sept. 2-3, 2015 Center for Media and Celebrity
Studies Conference presentation of his paper, “Corporate Colonization and
the Myth of Authentic Journalism.”
